The Union Leader on Democrat Rep. Cynthia Chase: “Dictatorial impulses.”

by Tim Condon

They can say that again. Democrat Rep Cynthia Chase told us recently that the “Free Staters are the single biggest threat the state is facing today.” Her solution? Pass laws…

…”to make the environment here so unwelcoming that some will choose not to come, and some may actually leave.” How’s that for the old NH Live Free or Die spirit? (Why Rep. Chase is in New Hampshire in the first place—having moved here from statist Rhode Island only a few years ago—is a mystery.) So now the Union Leader has weighed in with a Sunday editorial stating that if Rep. Chase’s remarks “had not come from an elected state representative, it would be laughable. But when a member of the majority party in the House of Representatives openly advocates restricting personal freedoms for the purposes of molding the electorate to her liking, alarm bells ought to ring….A much greater threat lies in the dictatorial impulses of legislators who find it permissible to reshape the electorate in their favor through the selective dismemberment of our liberties.”

Well spoken, as usual, by the Union Leader. You can read the entire editorial HERE.
